The Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0: 3 Options for Better Wedge Play

The Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0 provides a groove enhancement with 3 different sole options letting you optimize wedges to your game.

The grooves in the 588 RTX 2.0 are larger, with a steeper wall that creates 15% more spin than the previous 588 RTX wedge. Cleveland has also instituted a new face-milling pattern on the face of the wedge which increases the volume of the micro grooves. The micro grooves create a roughness on the surface of the wedge for increased spin.

It’s no secret that you can greatly benefit your game from solid wedge play. Are you a sweeper and typically play in hot and firm conditions? Great, they have a wedge for that. Do you take big divots or play in wet/rainy climates? No problem, they also have a wedge for that. Cleveland is giving you the option to choose the grind that best suits your game. There are three sole grinds available: one dot, two dot or three dots. All grinds are available the traditional 588 head or a slightly larger cavity back that features more bounce. Here are the details on the three sole grinds that are available:


One Dot
  • Low bounce with the most relief in the heel, toe and trailing edge of all three options.
  • Good for firm conditions and golfers that don’t take much of a divot.
  • 8 or 10 degrees of bounce.


Two Dots
  • Medium bounce that has a moderate amount of relief.
  • Good for a variety of conditions and golfers that take a normal divot.
  • 12 or 14 degrees of bounce.


Three Dots
  • High bounce that has a full sole width.
  • Good for soft conditions and golfers that take a big divot.
  • 14 or 16 degrees of bounce.
